Brandon J. McSweeney Memorial Scholarship Fund


Brandon J. McSweeney, 34, of Sherborn MA died unexpectedly on Saturday 12.28.19 while at work erecting the stage for Boston’s First Night. Brandon was a loving son to Jay and Sheryl McSweeney, and loyal brother to Russell, Jayson and Emily. He was a good natured man of quiet strength, solid intelligence and perpetual kindness. His loving presence will be sorely missed by family, friends and co-workers alike. My name is Russell McSweeney, Brandon’s older brother. In our family we value education and pursuing one’s dreams. Brandon embodied those values with vigor. That said, to ensure Brandon’s legacy and to enable future students who represent those values we are establishing the Brandon J. McSweeney Memorial Scholarship Fund.

This scholarship fund will be managed through the Brandon J. McSweeney Memorial Scholarship Foundation, a non-profit entity charged with managing and awarding the scholarship. The plan for the scholarship is to award one student of Dover-Sherborn Regional High School, on an annual basis, that exhibits high academic achievement, engages is community service and has a keen interest in the arts.

Thank you for your support.
